The setting - my brother contends that my mothers beloved "thingy plant" is fake. She tells him it isn't. He bites it to test whether it is or not, and my mother rushes over to save the plant from destruction. My step-father pipes up from his position at the other end of the room

"Leaf it alone"

After the obligatory groans and my gut-busting laughter:

"He's stalking it"

My mother, who loves falling on her own sword as much as the next person, chimes in:

"Stop planting ideas in his head"

That was cute. Sounds like stuff my dad and husband would say.

I love moments like that, when family is silly together.

Hmmm, some earthy family humour (ok, weak but it is Sunday!)

Hello again from your stalker (no pun intended ;-) )
